Posted by on 10 mai 2016

The first transcontinental railroad was built in the 1860’s. The main line was officially completed on May the 10th 1869. The train connected the well-developped rail network on the east coast with California. It was built so as to connect the rail network of the east to the pacific coast during the American civil war ! It was considered by some to be the greatest technological progress of the 19th century.
